RA#12 Ideal Studio
My Ideal studio would be a live work space, so I can wake up with my morning coffee and pick up where I left off the night before. I had a studio like this before and miss it tremendously. It was around 900 square feet on a ground level in the heart of midtown Sacramento. It had a kitchen and a bathroom (nothing special - just the amenities), but a lot of work space. It was drafty during the winter and hot during the summer (maybe I don't miss it so much - but I do). It had a roll up door which made it easier to get projects out the door that wouldn't fit through a regular door. It was my ideal studio. I have also had apartments which I would sacrifice my living space and kitchen to turn it into my studio space. Studios come and go along this path of being an artist. Sometimes you just can't pay the rent anymore and have to let it go. Linda Geary's studio was awesome, to have a work space and a show space, would be ideal. Ideally any space right now would be ideal. But Ideally my Ideal studio space would have about 1000 sq feet of work space minimum, and have my own kiln for ceramics. Have a roll up door because that is just an awesome thing to have. Lots of windows for the natural light. And if we want to get dreamy about it the roof would be able to open (like a convertible) for natural light and outdoor air. And to let fumes out easier. Wall space galore for all my works I create on the wall. It would also have a yard space so I can have a place for my animals as well as working outside. Location wise it would be best maybe for exposure to the public if I was in a midtown location, though thinking about my needs of outdoor space, maybe the country would be better. If we're dreaming here then I would have adequate transportation for my works to go to show. If we're really dreaming then I would be successful enough that I wouldn't need to transport my works, someone will come pick them up. Then if I'm that successful then I wouldn't need to make work to sell because I would have enough supporters who believed in what I did to fund me completely. So nice to dream. But really ideally any space right now would do. I miss my studio.
